PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zombie Gunship Survival, the new installment in the #1 top-grossing Zombie Gunship franchise has released globally on App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices.
Zombie Gunship Survival is a mobile shooter – free to download – with a user interface that will be familiar to FPS fans. Delivering a gritty, intense simulation in place of the arcade-shooter gameplay commonly found on mobile, the game puts players in direct control of the scenario-based action from the gunner seat of an AC-130 aircraft.
The story continues on from the IGN Editors’ Choice Award winning Zombie Gunship, with players taking to the skies to wage war against the undead several months after the outbreak of a devastating zombie apocalypse. By protecting ground troops during risky scavenging missions and securing valuable resources, players must safeguard the future of humanity by building a remote airfield, which acts both as a shelter for survivors and a base for operations. But with unrelenting zombie attacks, players will need to unlock and upgrade over 30 different weapons – from autocannons and rocket pods to rifles and submachine guns – to keep the hordes at bay.
Published by flaregames (Nonstop Chuck Norris, Nonstop Knight, Royal Revolt 2) and developed by Limbic (TowerMadness, Nuts!), Zombie Gunship Survival has been created by a top team of industry veterans including Jeff Miller (formerly Ubisoft, LucasArts) as Art Director, Eric Froemling (formerly Pixar) as Visual Effects Engineer, Constantine Hantzopoulos (formerly Looking Glass, Sega, Hasbro) and Borja Guillan (formerly PopCap Games) as Game Lead at flaregames.
“Redefining how gamers perceive shooters on mobile while successfully evolving a franchise that is loved by millions is no easy feat,” said Klaas Kersting, flaregames CEO and founder. “With such an enormous amount of work invested during development, the final game is a true testament to the world-class skills of the team and the incredible 3D engine powering the experience.”
“The Zombie Gunship franchise was designed to give the most demanding of audiences an interactive, realistic and immersive kind of gameplay that is rare on mobile,” said Arash Keshmirian, Limbic’s CEO and Creative Director. “The raw, awesome power of the AC-130 gunship, and our commitment to high production value drives an uncommonly visceral experience in Survival. We believe we’ve built an experience that millions of fans and new players alike will enjoy.”
